I’ve so enjoyed this season of SYTYCD. I continue to believe that this season’s top 20 and top 10 are the best yet. In fact,the quality is so evenly dispersed, that it took me a really long time to pick a favorite.

But, this week, I finally settled on Janette as my favorite dancer. Trained in salsa, she showed an amazing ability to excel at every dance thrown at her this season. Through it all, she brought an incredibly joyful attitude to the dance. I really thought she would make it to the top four, and was completely shocked on Thursday when she was voted off.Nigel said that she was his favorite (as had Mia on Wednesday), and thought America got it wrong. Until Ade and Melissa did their breast cancer survivor dance (which I truly did enjoy), I was convinced Melissa would be going home this week.

Despite having liked her throughout most of the season, I thought Jeanine had relatively weak performances this week, and I expected her to be in the bottom two.

I enjoyed Jason as well, but not as much as Janette, so am not quite as upset this he was voted off. That being said, I’m starting to get nervous about Evan. While he’s entertaining, he just isn’t the dancer some of the others are. I expected him to be in the bottom two, and once again, he wasn’t. Is it possible he has such a huge following, he’ll end up in the top four?

Are you watching? Were you happy about the results?

My first memory is sitting with my mother on a blanket in our backyard surrounded by books and she is reading one of them to me. My love of reading was encouraged by my parents and it continues to today. I’ve gone through a lot of different genres over the years, but I currently primarily read mysteries (historical mysteries are my favorites) and romances (focusing on contemporaries, categories, and steampunk). When I’m not reading or working, I love to travel, knit, and work on various community projects.
